“Do you love quick and easy projects! Graphic 45 Seasons  Collection has just made that possible! You can create fun wreaths through the seasons by using Graphic 45 Seasons 12 x 12 Paper Pad and Seasons 12 x 12 Patterns & Solids Pad, some chipboard and a good pair of scissors to create them. So now is the time to get started with creating a Winter Wreath that can be hung on the wall or framed to create a collage as you make the other seasons!” ~Pam



  1. Chipboard can be confiscated from cereal boxes, packing/shipping boxes. So save them for future projects.
